Although nocturnal enuresis is common in children and young people, many families have difficulty understanding the condition and accessing appropriate advice and support. Healthcare professionals need to be able to demonstrate knowledge of assessment, causes and management of nocturnal enuresis to provide patients and their families with individualised care. This article discusses the importance of identifying the causes of bedwetting, thorough assessment of the patient and selection of appropriate management strategies.
